The Packetmaster EX12 is a network packet broker and network controller switch that aggregates, filters and load balances network traffic sent to network monitoring, security and management tools. The EX12 filters and load-balances traffic from 10 Gbps link to multiple 1 Gbps monitoring tools or aggregates multiple 1 Gbps links to 10 Gbps monitoring tools. The EX12 also supports traffic modification as well as changing, removing and adding VLANs.
Functions / Benefits
Lifetime of rules: Rules can be set with a live time counter. If the counter becomes 0, the rule will be removed automatically.
Generate sFLOWs CDRs: The EX12 can send standard sFlow CDRs to a collector device to monitor the traffic processed by the EX12. These devices can produce graphs and SNMP traps for northbound signalization.
Load balancing: L2 / L3 hash based load balancing, up to 10 load balancing groups.
GRE Tunnel support: The device can work as end device for a GRE tunnel, for back hauling applications.
AAA Radius support: user identification.
VXLAN Tunnel support: The device can work as end device for a VXLAN tunnel, for back hauling applications.
Stacking of units: One Packetmaster can control several other Packetmasters. This gives the possibility to extend the amount of ports per unit.
The management host controller of every EX unit runs a full featured Debian Linux as operating system. On this host, script languages like Python, Perl, TCL, or simple Linux shells are available. This feature makes it possible to run 3rd party applications to extend the function of the Packetmaster. These applications can be developed by Cubro or the customer.
